Acts of the Synod of Dordrecht

The goal of the project is:

  • Τo produce a critical edition of all the documents of the Synod of Dordrecht in their original languages (mostly Latin, but some in Dutch, English, German and French) by an international team of institutions and scholars. This critical edition will be published as a multi-volume series, and be made available in digital format as well. The project is to be completed in time for the 400th anniversary of the Synod of Dordrecht in 2018/19;
  • Τo organise conferences, lectures and an exhibition;
  • Τo stimulate research (dissertations, book projects etc.);
  • Τo make the results of the project relevant for a wider audience.
